Gillian’s Story

This video tells the incredible story of Gillian McKenzie who at the age of 42 collapsed in her driveway from a cardiac arrest and was brought back to life with the quick actions of her 6 year old son Struan, neighbour Jackie, passer-by Craig and Sandpiper equipped GP’s Dr. Kris McLaughlin and  Dr. Stuart Reary from the nearby medical practice.

The story is told by the individuals involved through a series of interviews and takes you through what happened step by step from the point of Struan knocking on Jackie’s door to a very happy outcome.

Warning: some viewers may find this video distressing as it does contain part of the live telephone recording of the incident which was kindly provided by the Scottish Ambulance Service.
